Sweet Life's cakes, pastries and desserts are lovingly hand-made from scratch, using both traditional French and classic American recipes. The display cases are full of desserts, cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, ice cream and sweet and savory breakfast and lunch pastries. The bright and bustling atmosphere attracts gregarious customers who don't mind waiting shoulder to shoulder with other dessert fans on busy weekend nights. The adept baristas help guide people through the dazzling array of options. They will also make a fine latte or a pot of organic tea to go with dessert.
